If you're still there... you CANNOT be kicked out for HIV infection. I'm an enlisted reservist, was recalled after 9/11, and had my orders cancelled when my status turned up in my 5 year physical. If your local rescen won't inprocess you, contact the command senior enlisted there and tell him your situation. If you're still running into brick walls, try your nearest NR recruiter. If that doesn't work, contact ResFor in New Orleans.

My unit handled me well- my XO and HMCS took me aside on a non-drill weekend and let me know I was +. They got me a chaplain. I shook for an hour, but caught my breath. I moved closer to my family, and transferred to a new ResCen. My unit maintained confidentiality.

Sometimes, the Navy takes care of it's own.
